A man is dead after he was struck by a subway train at the 46th Street-Bliss Street station in the early hours Tuesday morning, MTA officials said.

The operator of a Manhattan-bound 7 train noticed the victim lying on the tracks as the train entered the station at 1:15 a.m. but was unable to stop in time.

The train struck and killed the man as he lay on the tracks, the MTA said.

Emergency Medical Services pronounced the man dead at the scene and services were suspended in both directions on the 7 line for over an hour during the course of a police investigation.

Police do not suspect criminality and were unable to provide any further information. The man’s identity has not been released.

He would have still found a way to get over. And name one 3rd world country that has “platform doors.”

What if platform doors prevented people (or workers) from getting OFF the tracks in an emergency? Could you imagine how gruesome that death would be?
